Is it just me or did other people have to format their hard drive for it to boot properly? Not that I had much stored on my SSD though... just a pain because I lost my windows disk D:

Now that I have it up and running, although I am getting some random crashes in games and the odd BSOD (which is becoming less frequent) can anyone suggest optimal settings for my board, I can OC the cpu and ram pretty easily but regards to anything else in the BIOS its just set to "auto"

Hi guys, I have got myself a Crosshair V, with Athlon II X4 640, so no big load, however the heatsink on the front and the back is extremely hot, even in idle, while gaming the rear heatsink gets so hot that I can't hold my finger on it for more than 1 second.
Is this normal ? I assume it is the northbridge producing so much heat, isn't it bad for the VRMs ?

Had to as well. I switched out boards numerous times with Windows 7 after changing from 700 series boards to 800 series boards including multiple different brands and stuff without ever having to, although sometimes i did just for the heck of it. But when installing this board I absolutely had to. Worked wonderfully since though, going on 3 months now.

What were your symptoms before you formatted?

the NB will get hot while gaming but it should not go over 65 C
good air flow in the case will help
check temp. right after a game with ASUS AI Syite II that comes on the ASUS disk
see pages 4-8 and 4-20

with a new botherboard you need to do a reinstall of windows and you may have to reformat the boot disk because a motherboard has a lot of drives as many as 200 and windows will try to use any of the old drivers it can find on the disk even if they have been deleted

BSOD on loading of Win 7. Im sure if had I uninstalled board drivers and all, it could have been done, but i was gonna do a fresh install anyways. Just was anxious I think.

Well, got the crashes sorted out, the culprit was my RAM as the processor will run 1600Mhz happily but when I tried to run my Vengeance at its stock speed (1866) it kept crashing in games and sometimes BSOD. Would there be a way to get around it so that it is stable? Part of me thinks it'd be best just to leave them at 1600 for now until Bulldozer arrives

Yeah i would do that. Since you are running at 1600mhz you can lower those timings and get about the same performance as if you ran at 1866mhz and stock timings. Bulldozer should have no problem with 1866mhz though. At least it is not suppose to.
